An oblique variation of the **Lambert
Conformal Conic** projection. The standard Lambert Conformal
Conic projection places the axis of the projection cone coincident with
the minor axis of the Earth ellipsoid. That is, the axis of the cone is
normal to the Earth ellipsoid at the pole.

The Krovak projection places the axis of the cone normal to the Earth ellipsoid at some other location and so the line of the axis of the cone intersects the minor axis at some defined angle.

True only along the pseudo standard parallel.

Free of distortion only along the pseudo standard parallel.

Used in the Czech Republic and Slovakia

Use only for a single hemisphere centered on the given central latitude and longitude.

Created by Professor Josef Krovak of Czechoslovakia in 1922 for tax and topographic maps for the Czechoslovakian geodetic service.

The Lambert Conformal Conic projection when the axis is normal to the pole.

Specify the Center Latitude and Center Longitude (normally centered on the area of interest). The Azimuth of the center line is the true azimuth of the center line passing through the center of the projection. This is also known as the "co-latitude" of the cone axis at point of intersection with the ellipsoid.

The Latitude of pseudo standard parallel is the latitude of the radius arc on the cone that is true to scale.
